Choosing the Best Yogurt
If you've ever found yourself staring at the array of yogurts in your grocery store, stumped by all the different styles and varieties and their various health claims, fear not. Huffington Post has compiled a slideshow of various yogurts, both familiar and exotic, and lists the health benefits of each. Culture also has a very soft spot for yogurt; be sure to check out our yogurt recipes, which appear in the spring issue.
"Yogurt is a useful option for people who are lactose intolerant but still want the health benefits of dairy foods because it contains live and active cultures that help digest lactose," points out Joy Dubost, R.D., Ph.D., CSSD, a board-certified sports nutritionist and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It's also a healthy snack for adults and children alike to help build bones with calcium and vitamin D and possibly even improve your digestion.
